"ON EAGLE'S WINGS"

Verse 1
Life with all its ups and downs
Is sometimes hard to take,
There are obstacles you face
That can cause your heart to break.
But when an eagle soars into the lonely sky,
The wind that blows against him
Is the force that lifts him -high.
Chorus
So fly on eagle's wings,
Bravely face the wind
And let it lift you up,
Lift you far above
The mountains down below.
Leave the past be-hind,
Sail upon the wind,
Beyond the far horizon you will see
A realm of untold vision
That you've never known before
As you soar on eagle's wings.
--
Verse 2
Though you've been misunderstood
For the good you've tried to do,
And the battles seem so great
And the victories so few,
One day you will look back
And find to your surprise
That the times that were the hardest
Were the times you learned to fly.
Chorus
[Fly on eagle's wings, fly on eagle's wings]
Bravely face the wind [face the wind]
And let it lift you up,
Lift you far above
The mountains down below.
Leave the past behind,[leave the past behind]
Sail upon the wind, [sail on the wind]
Beyond the far horizon you will see
A realm of untold vision
That you've never known before
As you soar on eagle's wings.
Instrumental Break: ---------
Fly...
[Leave the past be-hind,] on eagle's wings
[Sail upon the wind,]
If you look beyond the far horizon
You will see
A realm of untold vision
That you've never known before
As you soar
On eagle's wings.
On eagle's wings.

[Note from Michael Dooley.: The chord Fm6/D is technically a D half-diminished but since this is a rather unusual chord I thought it would be better to call it by this name as it actually has the same effect and may be easier to play if named this way.]
